Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Hey LIA, get off my cloud!

That's my work in progress- I've promised. But you can share the results of my early research:

"Keep Your Day Job"
Words by Robert Hunter; music by Jerry Garcia
Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission.
Maybe you collect or maybe you pay
Still got to work that eight-hour day
Whether you like that job or not
Keep it on ice while you're
lining up your long shot
Which is to say
hey-ey
[Chorus] Keep your day job
Don't give it away
Keep your day job
Whatever they say
Ring that bell for whatever it's worth
When Monday comes don't forget about work
By now you know that the face on your dollar
Got a thumb to its nose and a
Hand on your collar
Which is to say, hey-ey
[Chorus]
Punch that time card
Check that clock
When Monday comes
You gotta run, run, run
Not walk
[Chorus]
Steady, boy, study that eight-day hour
But don't underrate that paycheck power
If you ask me, which I know you don't,
I'd tell you to do what I know you won't
Which is to say
Hey-ey
[Chorus]
Daddy may drive a V-8 'Vette
Mamma may bathe in champagne yet
God bless the child with his own stash
Nine to five and a place to crash
which is to say...
[Chorus, with added lines at end:] Keep you day job
Until your night job pays

[Ist set closer – I was just so happy to be at the Rocks, it didn’t bring me down. People rag on Fantasy (rightly so) but it was such a blast when they went into it as this show. US Blues 2x in 3 days made me less than thrilled than the overall dude in the movie. You know the guy….

First set closer. I lost my clothes and my mind. Thanks Bright Star from the Haight Ashbury Medical Clinic and Wavy Gravy for giving me a pair of jeans while I resisted thorazine on the Nobody for President in ’84 bus. Kesey laughed at me, so I had that going for me.

This was the funniest subject line in a long time...and you know, between this, LiA's post above, and his humor in the post below (after my rant), I do believe that a real serious sense of humor is hidden among the archives of amazing insights and information he has "up there"...nice to see it. Pretty soon we'll reduce him to back and forths with Dire, and oh how the mighty will have fallen.

Bwaaahhaaa...or some such...how else could I respond to the comment somewhere about "the only professor..."? We got professors coming outta our ears around here. In a good way;, oh, and to be sure--any time LiA wants his honorary doctorate, I am happy to pick up a few at the uni.

Dire proves this everyday...but, maybe that was the school of hard rocks he was telling me about.

Great job! But seriously why does everyone hate Day Job? I thought it was a great little uptempo set closer, but as far as I can tell everyone else hates it.
